Suhaib Ilyasi moved the court, challenging the courts decision to give him life imprisonment for the murder of his wife. Now, the Delhi High Court has asked the Delhi Police to file their reply based on the appeal of Ilyasi before March 3 2018. Suhaib Ilyasi was a television producer and anchor, who was the host of a popular crime show named, India’s Most Wanted. He is also the editor of Bureaucracy Today’. He was convicted of murdering his wife, Anju, and was charged under the Section 304B of the of Indian Penal Code for Dowry death.
He was convicted and charged with the sentence of life imprisonment by the High Court on December 20, 2017. Anju’s family had been suspicious of Suhaib’s intentions, as her sister, Rashmi had filed a report in the police that he had tortured Anju for Dowry, which had driven her to commit suicide. Initially, it had seemed that Anju had stabbed herself to death. Two constables had been gaurding his house because Ilyasi had claimed that he was being threatened by the underworld because of the content of his show. Anju’s condition was critical and she was announced dead when she arrived at the hospital.
The reason of her death was excessive bleeding from the wounds that had been inflicted on her. But after the forensics reports, 6 fingerprint characters were found but 13 were required to match it to the person, there were also consistencies in the entry wounds in her body.
